BANGOR – Just in time for warmer weather, a staple to Bangor’s waterfront is returning.
Beginning on June 1, dine-in restaurants have been given the okay to reopen across the state except in Androscoggin, Cumberland and York counties.
While they’re opening up under Phase 2 of Gov. Janet Mills’ reopening plan, the food trucks that have become a staple on Bangor’s waterfront are also scheduled to be coming back.
“Food trucks on the waterfront have become quite an attraction and quite an amenity and service that the city has been able to partner with these vendors to provide. Although it’s a little late this year we’ve been able to provide. Although it’s a little delayed this year, we had come up with a good plan for each of them to open,” said Bangor Parks and Recreation Director Tracey Willette.
He said the earliest some of the food trucks would be open would be the weekend before June 1, while other trucks would open to the public gradually throughout June.
“Pompeii Pizza is planning on opening on June 1. Wild Cow Creamery, Melt and La Casa Mexicana is planning on coming in June, a little later in June, probably the middle of June sometime,” Willette said.
He added once the trucks are open, it will be curbside pick up only and each food truck will have different hours to stagger customers coming to the service area.
“We wont have the typical gathering right around the trucks that normally would have happened down there and the service area will be different. Those are the two biggest changes,” he said.
